to a major falling out with his one time friend, senator john mccain. >> for then senator hagel to see he'll let history be the judge he was there and involved. he knows he's wrong on the basis of what happens. >> you saw the hearing know his record, are you going to support him for defense secretary? >> i will see the rest of the answers to his questions, but certainly i have very grave concerns. >> it's not just john mccain, senator lindsey graham probably won't vote for him. she tried to link him to the attacks on oh the u.s. personnel in benghazi, now threatening to hold up the confirmation unless the administration answers more questions on that attack. >> no confirmation without information. this is complete system failure and i'm going to get to the bottom of it. >> now that might have been the craziest turn in the story but former vice president dick cheney criticized the president's choice of foreign policy leaders. he told a group of wyoming republicans: >> cheney should know from sect rate people, because dick cheney is now criticizing someone else's foreign policy team. i give
with eleanor about the opposition to the nominee john hhagel. here is senator john mccain on "meet the press." >> we feel he will have the votes to be confirmed as the secretary of defense. i don't intend to give those up when other senators continue to have reasonable questions. i mean reasonable. >> you are not a yes vote for your old friend? >> no, i don't believe he is qualified. i don't believe we should hold up his nomination any further. >> can you tell me what is going on here, eleanor with this? we have a week delay and probably going to be confirmed. >> senator hagel supported barack obama over john mccain. i think it is very personal with mccain. i think with other republicans, they are looking ahead to the 2014 races and they don't want to be primaried from the right. they have to look tough here. in the end, they are saying he will get through. he will get through without perhaps any republican votes or a handful of republican votes. i don't think that say very good message to send to the rest of the world the politics the republicans are playing in this. mccain, he wants to hav
, radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. >> meantime, senator john mccain says that hagel is not qualified, but he thinks it's time to go ahead with a vote since enough time has gone by to ask questions and now shall the white house is worried because two important nominations are going so slowly not only hagel, but john brennan to head the cia. >> between john brennan, the cia director and chuck hagel secretary of defense, we want to make sure we have them sitting in the the chairs working and i don't want something to have been missed because of the hangup in washington. >> reporter: and the vote is expected sometime after congress returns to work on february 25th, harris. >> harris: steve centanni, thank you. florida senator marco rubio talking about the white house plan for immigration reform saying quote, it's dead on arrival. as you may know, rubio was one of the republican and democrat senators who reached a break through bipartisan break through. another member of the so-called gang of 8, john mccain tweeted, headed down to southern arizona to assess bo
steadily. everybody knows where everybody stands so let's have a vote on it. >> i want to play what john mccain said this morning. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. this raises the question that many of us continue to wonder about. does the president really want a result or does he want another cadgeal to beat up republicans to get political advantage in the next election. >> who and/or what do you believe is behind the leak? >> it is interesting what senator mccain said about the next election because president obama was just reelected. house democrats would like to win back control of the house and they look at this as a political tool for them. there is a plan floating out there and they are talking to different groups. they are not really talking to republicans on capitol hill as senator mccain is pointing out. the nitty-gritty particulars of these two proposals that are out there, the gang of eight that senator mccain is a part of, the principles there are not all that different from what is in this draft legislation that was leaked to "usa today." the problem is it is all a
disagreeable. and -- >> john mccain said that. >> he's a hero. >> um-hum. >> he's a hero. i don't know why some of our elected officials behavi s behay do. it's rather sad frankly. >> that's on a federal lev. look at the city you ran, the largest city in the nation. what was the tenor of partisanship at that point? >> well, it was great. but when the battle was over, you sort of put away the weapons and -- and, you know, the pitchforks and got out the shovels or something. it -- it was different. it was a hard-fought battle, but i am -- i emerged with better than 50% of the vote in the primary, then i faced rudy, and he is not yet america's mayor. 9/11 has not yet occurred. >> and what is it that put you over the steps. >> and the democrats, and it was 5-6-1. >> you are mayor in this city. in your tenure, all republicans. >> part of the is, my friend mike in the last election, spent well over 1$100 million. >> more of our conversation at 12:00 noon. and we'll talk about what he thinks is the root cause behind president obama's detractors. >>> picking the winners. one expert's prediction. get ou
taylor project, bob franken and boris epstein, republican strategist who worked on john mccain's presidential campaign. good to see all of you. >> hello. >> how are you, craig? >> goldie, we'll start with you. ladies first. nate silva, of course, of the "new york times," he is picking "argo" writing in "the times" and "zero dark thirty" may have won slightly more critical acclaim but the critics do not vote for the oscars and the insiders have, and there's been absolute consensus among insiders. it would an enormous upset if it were to lose. i know you're not an insider, but if you had to pick which politically themed movie out of these three, "lincoln," "argo" and "zero dark thirty," which of these three do you pick? >> i almost always go with nate silva. difficult to go against 538 in any situation but this time i go with "lincoln." >> really, daniel day-lewis did a masterful job. >> how about you, boris? what do you think? >> i've been getting crushed by nate for a long time dating back to the election. also republicans have been having a tough time going against him, but i'
, once in the stands for george w. bush. on the subject of dreams and nightmares, guess which one john mccain was having in 2007? a big yawn from harry reid in 2010. and for vice president biden, perhaps a moment of meditation in 2011. mr. biden's hands have their very own chapter in the state of the union history book. so much sitting and standing and clapping, easy to see why he might have a timing issue. >> less than 1%. >> reporter: -- there is the air boxing fist pump -- >> that dream is why the working class kid from scranton can sit behind me. >> reporter: and, of course, the palms to the sky shrug. >> nobody messes with joe. am i right? >> reporter: we have the constitution to thanks for this annual address. and even if the state of the union is animated, sleepy, or dreamy, according to the president -- >> the state of our union will always be strong. >> john berman, this is why i love you. let me just say this, shouldn't everyone in that sacred room just always sort of assume you can be on camera at any moment in time, right? on your best behavior. >> absolutely. drink 12 cups of cof
market based solution to climate change like the one john mccain and joe lieberman worked on. if congress won't act soon to project future generations i will. >> on thursday the government accountability office came out with a new report identifying risks to the government and at the top was fiscal exposure the federal government faces due to climate change. remarkable. darrell issa had this to say about the gao report. >> i don't want to walk away from anything in this report. when you look at climate change and hurricane sandy and others, it points out that we have underprepared through fema and through our emergency funds including flood control for a generation. >> finally this week senators bernie sanders and barbara boxer introduced a climate bill in the unlikely event it will pass would represent a major victory for the climate, for environmentalists and enable the environmental protection agency to regulate fracking. after several years of exile, climate policy is back on the agenda. thank god. now i don't want to minimize how far things have to go and how many challenges there ar
party lines. senator john mccain blasted hagel's performance before the committee. >> the performance before this committee was the worst that i've seen of any nominee for office. he refused to answer a simple straightforward question. as to whether the surge was a success or not and whether he supported it or not. >> in london, there is a new phone-hacking scandal at a tabloid already brought down by hacking. we're talking about rupert murdoch's old newspaper "news of the world." six former staffers have now been arrested, accused of listening to people's private voice mails. the victims have not been identified in this case. now, police say the incidents happened somewhere between 2005, 2006, that is around the same time "news of the world" was implicated in a much bigger hacking scandal involving crime victims, celebrities, even the royal family. actor matt damon is on strike, not from hollywood, but from the bathroom. >> until everybody has access to clean water and sanitation, i will not go to the bathroom. yeah? >> what? >> i'm not going to go to the bathroom. >> whoa. >> yeah,
like john mccain who say, why don't we just go home? why would we give this added authority to the president. and then in talking to senior administration officials, they are saying, quote, that it is a cynical device, and it is a complete sham. and the reason they believe that, as one put it to me, is, look, it is like telling somebody, okay, we know you have to cut two of your fingers off, but you get to choose which ones. not much of a choice. >> okay. gloria borger, my thanks to you. >> sure. >> while gloria was discussing, washington leaders back and forth at one another. they are standing together to honor rosa parks. there he is, speaking earlier, president obama, also had congressional leaders and more than 50 of her relatives gather, at the capital to unveil this bronze statue of her. she stands nine feet tall. she is the first black woman to be honored with a statue there. >> rosa parks' singular act of disobedience launched a movement. the tired feet of those who walked the dusty roads of montgomery helped a nation see that to which it had once been blind. it is b
related or similar to what his tax increases have done. >> but at the same time, senator, both john mccain as well as speaker boehner have both called these cuts incredibly dangerous as well. >> well, it's dangerous in the sense that most of the cuts or at least half of them are coming directly from the military, which has already experienced some budget cuts. so the defense system in our country is only about 20% of total spending, but 50% of the cuts come from it. and in that sense, it does weaken our security. but defense spending will still increase 16% over the next ten years. so, there are no cuts here. there's a slight reduction in the increases of spending. the real damage to our economy is going to come from the tax increases and other policies, such as the implementation of obama care. >> so, arianna, what were you hinting at before? you think these cuts will create more employment? will weaken economic growth? is that what you're suggesting? >> exactly. and, you know, i think senator demint and many republicans really believe that the major problem we're facing is the deficit an
the president's bill would be dead on arrival. senator john mccain accused the white house of playing politics. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. >> reporter: democrats engaged in damage control. >> we've talked to senator rubio. he is fully on board with our process. i am very hopeful that in march we will have a bipartisan bill. >> reporter: an administration official says that leak was not planned. now that bipartisan group of senators continues to work on immigration reform but passage is not certain with lawmakers still sharply divided on key issues. natalie? >> kristen welker, port st. lucie, thank you so much. >>> lost his job after being charged with slapping a toddler on a minneapolis to atlanta flight. accused of hitting the 2-year-old and calling him a racial slur. the boy's mother says he appeared to be intoxicated on the flight and lashed out at their baby when he started to cry. his attorney says he will plead not guilty to the federal assault charge. >>> another history-making win for danica patrick. stock car driver became the first woman to nab a top spot for an
